What is an Indian Bread Roll Recipe?

They are an extremely popular Indian snack made using a mix of potato, bread and a few other ingredients. The dough is then rolled into oblong/round or ball-shaped and fried till golden brown and crispy.

Also, known as ‘Indian Potato Croquettes’. In India, you would hardly come across anyone who would have not grown up eating them, especially in their school cafeteria/canteen.

So how they happen to come on the blog today you ask? …. well, as we go through another marathon of calls with school friends this week, suddenly the canteen food was discussed and everyone uttered the name ‘Bread Roll’ in one go !!

Yup, that’s when I decided YOU have to try the recipe ASAP (if you’ve never had it before) or go make them again if it’s been sometime since you last had them.

After devouring these ‘Crispy Bread Rolls’ maybe 4th or 5th piece, if you suddenly get bogged down by the guilt of all those fried food, worry not, as I do have the Baked Bread Rolls or the more modernized version of Air Fryer Bread Rolls too 😉
